on the united states supreme court when he was appointed by president madison in 1812. he made a significant mark on american law in his 33 years on the bench, but his greatest contribution to the jurisprudence is his renowned commentary on the constitution. eminently quoted joseph story famously incorrectly declared, quote, a constitution of government is addressed to the common sense of the people and never was designed for trials of logical skills or visionary speculation and of quote. this lecture series celebrates the legacy into law. prior to the joseph story lectures have been and judge robert bork, professor john harrison at the university school of law, judge raymond randolph of the united states court of appeals for the d.c. circuit, and last year chief justice of the united states court of appeals for the sixth circuit. tonight we are honored to have a fifth name to the prestigious list as we welcome justice anthony kennedy who will deliver this evening's joseph story distinguished lecture on the topic, t

for congress extending the borrowing authority of the united states. >> will they roll it out. >> you can speculate about a lot of things, but there's not-- nothing needs to come to these kinds of, you know, speculative notion about how to deal with a problem easily resolved by congress doing its job. very simply, since treasury, i believe, overseas printing and minting, you might ask treasury. >> at no point in-- >> and joining me now the chairman of the south carolina democratic party and mark theeson, enterprise institute and former speech writer for george w. bush. if congress doesn't give him the authority to raise the debt limit, he has the end around it with the trillion dollar coin he could just sort of say is there and allows him to spend more because we have this extra savings to really boil it down. mark, your thoughts? >> this, this may be one of the stupidest ideas ever to come out of washington and that's saying something. it's not clear it's legal. edward moy, under bush and obama may say it's legal to print a trillion dollars platinum coin, it doesn't have a trillion dolla
science positions every year in the united states cannot be filled by available american workforce positions. and i have positions that need to be filled so that our technology industry can continue to thrive. simply put, u.s. based companies have a great need for those trained in the science, technology, engineering and math fields. but at least right now there are not enough americans trained and ready to fill these jobs. we cannot continue to simply hope that american companies do not move operations to countries where they have greater access for individuals trained in these s.t.e.m. fields. we cannot continue to ignore this problem. it's that simple. continued in action -- especially since the american enterprise institute has confirmed 100 foreign-born workers with s.t.e.m. degrees create an average of 262 additional jobs for nativeborn workers. let me tell you, these countries would love to have the american educated ph.d's and other highly educated individuals return and boost their economies. not only from their acquired skills, but also by creating these new jobs as well.
that cannot be cured by what is right with america. >> the united states will not ignore your oppression or excuse your oppressors. >> all are equal. all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness. >>> the presidential inauguration is getting under way right here on the capitol, and we have a front row seat. >> here on the national mall, people are staking out their spot to experience this moment in history. >> the sun rises on barack obama's second term. >> we gather because we have chosen hope over fear. unity over purpose. >> on this day, a public celebration of the presidency after a private oath the day before. >> so help you god? >> so help me god. >> on this capitol where so many battles have been fought and will be fought, political rivalries are being set aside in a show of democracy and unity for all the world to see. >> and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. we are and forever will be the united states of america. >>> we're live here on the west front of the united states capitol for one of the grandest celebration
legal in most parts of the united states today. so at the 18-coca is very similar, but on the same mountainside by the same people and they both have our polloi as the principal ingredients. the caffeine and the cocaine are both in their pure form powerful stimulants. caffeine is toxic in its purest form and so i wanted to make a comparison about those, and get into the history of cocaine. that is when it crept into the question of coca-cola. the coca-cola company. that fascinated me because i grew up with those rumors. there was cocaine in coca-cola. started to take the cocaine out of coca-cola in 1902-1903. they met a german cocainemaker who basically was the person who would take out the cocaine in new jersey and we could talk today, that pharmaceutical company, that chemical company is still there today, you can go on the web site and every year see how they have to register coca leaf and register the production of cocaine as a control substance. so i went into that history and found out coca-cola -- absence to coca leaf in the last century and where this comes together today a
of people thought that was in possible. how could we do that? nobody had been in orbit yet in the united states. what kind of rockets are we going to build to be given to do it, and what is the main principle? he was going to build a big spacecraft but we didn't have a rocket to go in. we needed to lift the spacecraft that would do everything. take people up, go to the orbit, land, a comeback and then back into the ocean again. it was a monster. so he needed a rocket for the 1970's. so we had one to carry the injection and the other to carry the big spacecraft until somebody said we met. if we look at what we want to do, which is to get a man on the moon and bring him back, let's look at the settlements of this instead of a spacecraft to do everything. >> 100 years from now -- i'm just throwing a question and i will go back to this -- that you touched on something hundred, 200 years from now or we going to look back at the space program and say how primitive. in the 200 years, where to go from here from new york come to london, how advanced is this thing going to get? >> time will tell o
ronald regan and one of the most decorated veterans of vietnam. united states senator. celebrated author. lawyer. and i thought he made a pretty strong, persuasive case. so did many of us. >> let's turn to cybersecurity. i was pleased that you mentioned cyber security in your initial remarks. they have moved expand its cyber security efforts. i have to talk about colorado. the air force academy is well positioned to train those. would you talk a little more on your take on cyber security and what sort of resources we need. >> i've been to those facilities in colorado a few times and don't know as much about them as you do, but i am familiar with them. they are essential to our national security. cyber, i believe represents as big a threat to the security of this country as any one specific threat. for all the reasons this committee understands. it's an insidious quiet, kind of a threat that we have never quite seen before. it can paralyze a nation in a second. not just a power grid or banking system. but it can knock out satellites. it can take down computers on all our carrier battle s

, basically. and so the thing that's hard to get across to people in the united states or these policymakers is that coca is not cocaine. all right? it's -- and indigenous peoples of this hemisphere should not be punished because some people refine it into can cocaine and abuse it. coca, there's great dignity and value to this lease, and there's an ancient tradition that doesn't harm people, and the arrogance by which the united states foreign policy tries to dictate terms to places like bolivia, less than 1% of excess cocaine in bolivia with ends up in the united states. and yet the heavyhanded nature of u.s. policy, you would think this was some kind of flood coming from bolivia the way we dictate terms to that country. and so, now, imagine if the united nations and the audience of the u.n. convention were to treat coffee the way, with the contempt they treat coca, right? what would happen if they -- and they've told bolivians and peruvians you have to stop chewing coca which they've been doing for centuries, if not thousands of years. imagine if they did that to the united states, you kno
personnel, ready for this event. we have snipers on the roofs. we have biological and chemical units prepared to deal with whatever comes up. we have a high degree of surveillance. satellites zooming in on the mall, as well as hundreds of surveillance cameras, to watch potential suspects. as one official told me last night, we have no specific threat. but we have to be ready for anything, george. >> and i know they've been preparing for this for a year. they've been locking the buildings on the parade route. they've been locking the garbage cans on the parade route. repaved the road. they are taking no chances. we have an incredible team of presidential savvy with us this morning. i want a quick word from two of them sitting with us here. let's start with matthew dowd, contributor to abc news. you have contributed to a combine, as well. both sides of the aisle. what does it take for a president to take a second inauguration and make it soaring? >> well, it's a much different situation when you go from the first to the second. the first one, everybody's filled with hope. we can make c
concentrated and very sedentary. so about 10% of all the people in the united states own about 80% of the guns. they're mostly middle class, middle-aged people living in rural areas, and they hold on to their guns for a long time. on the other hand, most of the people engaged in crime are teens and young adults. one of the -- and most criminal careers are short. and so one of the things that that means is that there's always a new generation of young people who are troying to solve the problem -- who are trying to solve the problem fresh of getting their hands on guns. and i think one way that you could think about the challenger here or the situation here is you could think about the united states being just like a giant bathtub filled with 300 million guns. we don't need to worry about the entire tub, we just feed to worry about -- we just need to worry about the drain, trying to divert the guns away from the high-risk hands. the one other thing that i want to mention for the conversation right now is we have a bunch of stuff going on at the federal level, and we have a bunch of states tryin
in the united states these policy makers is that coca isn't cocaine. indigenous people shouldn't be punished because some people refined into cocaine and abuse state and there's great value and this is an ancient tradition that doesn't harm people and the arrogance by which the foreign policy traced to dictate terms and countries like bolivia less than 1% of any excess cocaine in bolivia and set in the united states. and the heavy-handed nature of the policy would think this is some kind of a flood from bolivia the way that we dictate terms in this country. now imagine if the united nations and the u.n. convention were to treat coffee the way with the content they treat coca what would happen if they tell oblivion's chewing coca which they'd been doing for centuries if not thousands of years imagine if they did that to the united states you have to give up this habit now. she was a major that went to elmhurst college, and in 2001 he comes by europe with the administration to secretly them coffee for one day without notice during finals week as a project so all these students get up in the mo
or it will have a huge drag on the united states economy. once again, revisit the issue for the first time in american history. it is not a perfect package. it is something that gets us by while we tackle the large issues in the next congress. >> we are confronted with a bill that, if the vote full voting- age allow us to go over the ceiling or we can try to come together and pass something that neither tside of the aisle will agree with 100 percent. -- 100%. we do not have to can to new fighting. we have got to make sure parrot what i fin. maybe we are moving in the right direction and maybe we are moving toward -- forward. >> we expect them back any minute now. we do not know yet exactly what all happened -- what will happen. what we are hearing from several different sources is the rules committee is going to bring it up and it will be a straight up or down vote on the senate bill. the house will come back into session any minute now. off.ight have to cut an let's hear more voices. here are tweets -- let's hear voices on the phone. linda, what do you think? >> i do not think they know h
dress, coat, fashion and such little time talking about the president of the united states and the overcoat he's wearing? what cab you tell us about that overcoat? >> well, i will ask him, wolf, but i will say i have an answer. she's more beautiful than he is and a better dresser. but other than that -- >> the poor men always get neglected, right? the president looks great. >> he had a very important tie choice to make today. it looks like he coordinated with her. >> he was definitely coordinated. his blue tie was really the final detail to the entire obama family and their color scheme. >> everybody gets a new outfit. i'm always wondering this. i just got married. my now husband got a new suit for the wedding but, you know, he didn't have to. men can -- did he get a new suit for the inauguration or did he wear a suit he already had? >> i would hope he got a new suit today. it's a great day. new year, new term. >> he did, he had a new suit for the last inauguration. i believe it was a tailor out of chicago who designed his suit. so certainly you would think he might have an

oil companies in the united states. they are here because they don't get those kind of benefits in norway or sweden. i get gas royalties out of ohio from a french company. they get 30% they don't even pay tax on. we have to run a country. i think simpson-bowles is the right direction, but i don't think simpson-bowles goes far enough. at one time i thought steve forbes' idea was great, but he wants to keep a certain piece of money that is an entitlement. guest: and makes a very good point that we have got to have the kind of pro-growth tax reform that simplifies the system, broadens the base, lower rates, but that stimulates economic growth and economic development. that means not only getting people back to work but it is the growing economy that creates more revenue, not higher taxes. the growth and the revenues from growth is what we really need to address the deposition and debt. often we don't focus on that enough in the scoring, like the cbo, congressional budget office scoring you see all the time, the revenue from growth is not factored in. in anything we put together a,

and even here in the united states. we could have passed it last year. he we had republicans and democrats -- we had republicans and democrats, not a single senator blocked that passage. i hope we canover come the obstruction. this is a blight on the world community. it's a blight on the united states. we should be taking steps to stop it. we also have to in the judiciary committee continue to exercise oversight when it comes to our nation's counterterrorism efforts to protect the civil liberties of all americans. we'll examine the constitutional and legal issues implicated by the administration's use of droughns abroad. my concern goes beyond the legal force used against suspected terrorists. i am concerned about the growing use of drones by federal and local authorities to spy on americans here at home. this vast emerging technology is cheap, but i think just because it's available doesn't even it helps us. i think there could be a significant threat to the privacy and civil liberties of millions of americans. so just because we have the technology that allows us to spy on each other, le
and put the united states government on the proper fiscal path. that is possible. but i don't mean to sound partisan, but there is one person who has been elected the president of the united states. it's going to take presidential leadership and issuing no compromise ultimatums as the president just dis not the way to get it done. that's not the way to reach across the aisle because the republicans do control the house of representatives. the american people put those republicans there. i think they expect the republicans and the democrats to work together -- >> that is the point. the voters did vote in president obama and kept the majority in the senate. but the voters decided they wanted to have republicans in control of the house of representatives. that says something. >> you know, i don't see any appreciable difference between the republicans and the democrats, i have to tell you. i would like to see a second party emerge in which the american people are protected. these are cultural wars that the democrats and the republicans haven't signed on to. they have come together and
of this country. what is so important for economic growth in the united states of america is capital, is people having the money in their pockets to be able to invest, innovation and the growth of small businesses and other businesses and corporations. but what you see happening right now is a redistribution of that wealth through taxation. when you look at the affordable care act and the fact that you are going to have capital gains taxes and dividend taxes part of that, health savings accounts and flexible spending accounts, being taxed largely. when have you such things as real estate and financial transaction tax and medical expenses all of a sudden, taxed. that's on top what you have are already seeing with the affordable care act. you can't go above 50 employees or you go into a different category. what we see right now, greta, is the tax code used as a punitive measure to grow washington, d.c., to grow bigger government and redistribute wealth, based upon their ideological beliefs. >> one of the biggest expenses in the federal government does include some of our more impoverished neighbo

. father an oil man and senator of the united states raised al in privilege. he became a champion of the left in adulthood. cashing in big time on the global warming issue. the former vice president used some of that money to then invest in a far left cable network that has been a collosal failure. so al-and his merry men decided to sell that network. according to the "new york times" today, they wanted to close the deal last week to avoid the higher capital gains tax this year. sounds like good business sense, right? here's what is confusing. just two months ago. old al gave an interview to the reuters news service and said this. >> the single most popular proposal we had was to reduce taxes on working people and lift the higher rate. let's give an incentive to work and let's ask the most fortunate in our society, including me and you. >> yeah. >> to do our fair share. >> bill: to do our fair share. isn't that fascinating? so, what is our fair share? oh, i guess that means selling assets at the lower capital gains rate. and it even gets worse. al gore sold his cable network to, w
as an opportunity for leverage to get those spending cuts that they didn't just get. the president of the united states says he's not going to play ball on that. he may unilaterally raise the debt and may lower the debt and there are a few options on the table so we'll have to see how that plays out. >> do you think he might invoke the constitution to prevent congress from holding him hostage? >> we have to see. the white house pretty much shut that down in december and november when there were discussions of possibly doing that especially when liberal democrats were suggesting he should do it and he had proposed and it was quickly shut down the possibility of being able to do this in the future without congressional approval and that was shut down not only by republicans, but also democrats who said how dare he think about it. i think it would be a radical move and only because there was some serious gridlock. >> jonathan, let's turn our focus now to the speaker. we covered speaker boehner. this is what the former speaker of the house had to say about him. let's take a listen on the other side.
're in the top 10% of income in the united states. that means housing is no longer accessible to the middle class. and when the middle class can't buy housing, the middle class as we have known it since 1950 ceases to exist. so that's part two of the book. i've got programs that don't work, programs that do work. and then the intellectual challenge which really took the longest period to get my head around was, okay, if you know that these programs don't work and you've got a good fix on why and you know these programs do work and you have a good fix on why, are you capable of developing a social program or a blueprint for a program that would work? and that turned out to be quite tricky. you would like to help children. you would like to deal with social disadvantage of children. and the road block turns out that it is simply not in the political cards whether you're on the left or center, right of center or right on the center. our government is not about to help children by directing significant social resources to their parents. so one of the reasons most of our social programs fail is we giv
to be president of the united states meng corrected himself and said he is proud to be vice president of the united states. it is said that he does want to be president and he will throw his hat into the ring as soon as this gets underway. >> there are a couple of people who are likely to throw their hats in the ring, including mrs. clinton. they have used this family bible and all the swearing sin and his family. president obama we used to buy votes. i think history should note i saw one of the people on the stand who was jay-z. the first time that he has been on the inaugural stanford presidential inauguration. [laughter] also beyonce will be performing and james taylor and kelly clarkson. megyn: i'd like to take that back. you can start from scratch. but can you get through the rest of the day without either of these two words? the phrase makings once way -- making one's way.

president obama intends to end it for the united states. after meeting with hamid karzai at the white house, the president said the u.s. will probably be able to speed up, to accelerate plan troop withdraws. some americans will remain, presumably, their role, though, potentially becoming clearer. our white house correspondent brianna keilar is joining us. breakdown for us what came out of this meeting. >> reporter: wolf approximate, the main headline is afghan forces taking over control from u.s. forces and that was from president obama and president karzai, that is set to take place in the spring which is a slight acceleration. the other thing we heard from president karzai was that he's open to giving immunity to u.s. troops who may remain beyond 2014. that's immunity from afghan courts as well as their laws and that was a key demand of president obama's for having troop remain. president karzai said that the u.s. will hand over control to afghan prisoners to afghan officials and that was a key demand of karzai's for having troops remain. really the big headline is acceleration of troops

in orbit yet from the united states. what kind of rockets can be billed to do it? what is the main principle? he had a great principle -- he was going to build a great spacecraft, but we did not have the rockets to go with it. we needed a rocket that would do everything -- pick people up, land, liftoff, comeback, then back into the ocean again. it was a monster. so he made a rocket that would not be ready until 1970. we had to pick to saturn-5's, one to carry the spacecraft. someone said, wait a minute, if we look at what we want to do is get a man on the moon and bring him back -- let's look at segments of this instead of just one spacecraft to do everything. >> 100 years from now, 200 years from now, are we going to look back at today's space program and say, how primitive? in 200 years will you fly to the moon or mars the way we get to new york or london -- how advanced is this going to get? >> time will tell. the marketplace and the leadership and the politics -- do we want to lead the world or do we want to follow? it is my hope we want to lead. i do not think we will do that
